In general, the alkaline earth metal halides which may be used in the practice of the present process include the chlorides, bromides and iodides of magnesium, calcium, strontium and barium. Magnesium chloride is preferred.

The process of the invention preferably is carried out by reacting the benzylamine starting material with at least 1 molar equivalent of β-diketone reactant, 1 molar equivalent of alkyl halide reactant and 1 molar equivalent of alkaline earth metal halide although an excess of either or both benzylamine reactant and alkyl halide reactants can be used in order to ensure that the reaction goes to completion. A preferred range of benzylamine reactant to β-diketone reactant is from about 1 to 10 moles of benzylamine per mole of β-diketone. A preferred range of alkyl halide reactant to β-diketone reactant ranges from about 1 to 10 moles of alkyl halide per mole of β-diketone.

At least 1 mole of alkaline earth metal halide per mole of β-diketone reactant should be used in the process of the invention, although an amount of alkaline earth metal halide up to 20 moles of halide per mole of β-diketone reactant can be used, if desired.

The reaction is advantageously carried out with a temperature of about 50 C. to about 500 C. While lower temperatures can be used, the reaction rates are generally correspondingly lower. In any event, operating temperatures which would cause decomposition of the reactants used in the present process or the products produced thereby are to be avoided. Typically, the reaction is conducted at atmospheric pressure. However, higher pressures up to about 1000 psig may be used, if desired. Reflux temperature at atmospheric pressure is effective and preferred.

The use of a solvent for the reaction mixture is not generally required. However, if desired, a solvent which is inert under the reaction conditions, i.e., those solvents which do not enter into the reaction, may be added to the reaction vessel. Useful solvents comprise aprotic solvents which include ethers such as diethyl ether, dibutyl ether, 1-ethoxyhexane, tetrahydrofuran, 1,4-dioxane, 1,3-dioxolane, diglyme, 1,2-diethoxyethane, etc. Especially useful solvents are dipolar aprotic solvents such as dimethyl sulfoxide, N,N-dimethylformamide, N,N-dimethylacetamide, dimethyl sulfone, tetramethylene sulfone, N-methylpyrrolidinone, acetonitrile and like materials. Other solvents which are inert under the reaction conditions may be used: for example, low boiling hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons, examples of which are benzene, toluene, tetrachloroethane, the chlorinated benzenes, the chlorinated toluenes, etc.

Lower alkanols, preferably those having up to about 6 carbon atoms, also can be used as solvents in the process. These include methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, isopropyl alcohol, n-butanol, sec-butyl alcohol, t-butyl alcohol, n-pentanol, isopentyl alcohol, n-hexanol and isohexyl alcohol.

The amount of solvent can be expressed as a volume ratio of solvent to β-diketone reactant. Suitable volume ratios of solvent to β-diketone reactant can be from about 1/1 to about 500/1 and preferably from about 1/1 to about 300/1.

The mode of addition in the process is not particularly critical. Accordingly, it is convenient to add the benzylamine reactant to a mixture of the other materials, add the β-diketone reactant to a mixture of the other materials, add the alkyl halide reactant to a mixture of the other materials, add the alkaline earth metal halide compound to a mixture of the other materials, add the reactants to a mixture of the benzylamine and solvent, introduce all ingredients simultaneously to the reaction mixture, or the like.

The process should be carried out for the time sufficient to convert substantially all of the β-diketone reactant to the corresponding bis-benzylated 1,3-diketone product. The length of time for optimum yield will depend primarily on the reaction temperature and the particular solvent, if any, used in the reaction. In general, high yields of the bis-benzylated 1,3-diketones are obtained in from about two to about 24 hours.

The process may readily be conducted in a batchwise, semi-batchwise or continuous manner and in conventional equipment.

Under the reaction conditions, the benzylamine reactant is N-alkylated by the alkyl halide reactant to afford a quaternary ammonium salt, which subsequently fragments to give a quinone methide intermediate. This quinone methide intermediate is then alkylated by the 1,3-diketone reactant which is most likely complexed with the metal halide reactant. Attack of the 1,3-diketone on the quinone methide intermediate gives the bis-benzylated product of the present process.

The bis-benzylated 1,3-diketone product is separated from the reaction mixture by such means as distillation, extraction, and other methods obvious to those skilled in the chemical art.

Since the bis-benzylated 1,3-diketone products of the present process are believed to be novel compounds, in a still further embodiment of the present invention, there is provided, as new compositions of matter, compounds of the general formula: ##STR5## wherein R1, R2, R5 and R6, are the same or different and are hydrogen or hydrocarbyl radicals, preferably alkyl, aralkyl or cycloalkyl radicals having from 1 to about 20 carbon atoms each, and more preferably from 3 to 8 carbon atoms each with the provision that at least one of R1 or R2 and R5 or R6 must be other than hydrogen, and R3, R4, R7 and R8 are the same or different and are hydrocarbyl radicals preferably alkyl, aralkyl or cycloalkyl radicals having from 1 to about 20 carbon atoms, more preferably from 3 to 8 carbon atoms each.

The bis-benzylated 1,3-diketone products prepared by the process of this invention have antioxidant properties and are capable of stabilizing polymers normally subject to oxidative degradation when incorporated into the polymers using conventional techniques such as by addition to polymer lattices; or by addition to solid polymers on a mill or in a Banbury. Further, the novel compounds of this invention are deemed effective as antioxidants in both unleaded and leaded gasolines made from a wide variety of base stocks and for engine and industrial oils which are derived from crude petroleum or produced synthetically.

The practice of this invention will be still further apparent by the following illustrative examples.

EXAMPLE I Bis(3',5 -di-t-butyl-4'-hydroxybenzyl)acetylacetone

Into a 25 mL glass reaction vessel, an ethanol solution (7 mLs) of N,N-dimethyl, 2,6-di-t-butyl-4-aminomethylphenol (0.47 g, 1.8 mmol) was treated with methyl iodide (0.25 g, 1.8 mmol) and then stirred at room temperature for several minutes. In a separate 100 mL glass reaction vessel, an ethanol solution (15 mLs) of 3',5'-di-t-butyl-4'-hydroxybenzylacetylacetone (0.58 g, 1.8 mmol) was treated with magnesium chloride (0.17 g, 1.8 mmol). Next, the ethanol solution which contained the 3',5'-di-t-butyl-4'-hydroxybenzylacetylacetone and magnesium chloride was added to the ethanol solution containing the quaternary salt derived from N,N-dimethyl,2,6-di-t-butyl-4-aminomethylphenol and methyl iodide. The reaction mixture was stirred at room temperature for 45 minutes. Water (2 mLs) and a small amount of triethylamine was added and the reaction mixture was refluxed for 1 hour. Upon cooling the reaction mixture, a crystalline product (0.6 g) which was shown by NMR to be bis(3',5' -di-t-butyl-4'-hydroxybenzyl)acetylacetone, was collected (62%).

Having disclosed the process of the present invention, one skilled in the art can readily envision various modifications and changes which are nevertheless within the scope of the invention. Therefore, it is desired that the process of this invention be limited only by the lawful scope of the appended claims.
